Who knew that France was so close?! As soon as you walk inside Mon Ami Gabi, it truly is as if you are there. The servers were amazingly attentive, without being annoying and the cuisine was authentic as well as the wine. Unfortunately we were not able to eat outside because of the freezing temperatures, but inside is almost nearly... More

We used to really enjoy Mon Ami Gabi in Bethesda, but after dining there last night, we will not return anytime soon. Indifferent and inattentive service. The French Onion Soup was outstanding, but the remainder of food was disappointing. The Pomme Frites were oddly shaped, greasy and cold. Wine was overpriced except at Happy Hour. Really no longer anything special.

I dined in this restaurant last July. I was lucky because the weather was very nice and I could eat with my family in the outdoor. Inside is quite noisy The staff is really friendly and the food is really good. I especially recommend the dessert! Delicious! Really a place to reccomend

We had a Sunday brunch here. The Seafood Crepe (scallops, shrimp, peas and cream) was outstanding. The service was outstanding. Being in downtown Bethesda the table spacing was a little tight but we all enjoyed out meals

Mon Ami Gabi is always good. The service is superior, so much better than just about every other restaurant in the DC area - attentive, efficient and thoughtful. Not quite Europe, but pretty close. The food is also always good, especially the frites, which are amazing. I usually have filet mignon and have never been disappointed. Last night I had... More

Although a chain restaurant, it is still a "go to" for a predictably decent meal in a decent ambiance. This is not fine dining, it is French bistro style which is not a negative-it just isn't fine dining. The food is of decent quality with interesting and varied dishes, nice wait staff and reasonable for conversation.

Large and loud. More for office parties than intimate dining. Located in the heart of Bethesda. Pleasant outdoor seating

I frequent this restaurant a lot because the food quality and service is always good. My favorite foods here are definitely their tomahawk Pork chop, mussels, and escargot. The latter is packed full of pesto and garlic flavor so expect to smear on bread or wear it on your breath for awhile:

The ambiance is very nice. The French wine selection is great. Dinner menu is very limited. The food... not really French, except for the sauces, maybe. I ordered steak and frites, and you can order that kind of food at any American steakhouse. The dining experience was great, but definitely not authentic French food.

Thank Amalia S
